In this bonus for CAFE Insiders, Elie Honig and Safeena Mecklai take listeners behind the scenes of the sixth and final episode of this season of Up Against the Mob. They discuss why Goodfellas is the perfect film to illustrate the real-life modern day mafia, the central role of nicknames and food in mob culture, and what Elie hopes listeners take away from Season One of the podcast.
